I have the exact question. I have taken my new pill and it looks well smaller. Is it the correct pill? just the same? i dont want to be taking it and it be wrong!
If you look at the package insert that came with the pills, it looks like they just revised it in September 2015. It doesn't specify that the tablet size changed, not that I could find, but I'm pretty sure that since the numbers are all the same (specifically the 35/250) then it's the same thing so you shouldn't have any worries. You can always call the pharmacy where you got them and ask the pharmacist because they can look it up and tell you that it's the same.
Hi there Suzie,
I've been taking Cilest for 5 years with no problems whatsoever. But ever since starting this new formulation of Cilest in January, I've been suffering severe daily nausea/stomach ache, vertigo, a dry cough along with lung/chest pains.
My GP believes the new formulation may be the cause of my symptoms. She recommended I try to ride out the symptoms, but to seek help asap if my chest pain worsens.
Concerned and puzzled, I am currently in the process of submitting a medical report to the manufacturer's of Cilest.
Obviously, my symptoms may have nothing to do with the new Cilest pills, but it's a little too much of a coincidence to not investigate further.
I hope you've been getting along with the new formulation okay.
(If any other ladies taking Cilest have experienced any problems, or noticed any changes since taking the new, smaller pill, I'd be interested to hear from you!)
I have been taking the cilest pill for a few years now and it has always been fine, however since the new pill has been released I have felt sick each time that I have taken it, along with experiencing spotting on the days of taking the pills. On speaking to my doctor about my concerns , he didn't seem to think they were associated, however I tend to disagree. I have only experienced these symptoms since taking the new pill. From reading your comment Maggie, I shall contact the manufacturer too. My best friend has also been experiencing problems with the new pill too. So I am sure it is not a coincidence for us all. After this next packet, I shall be looking to change to a different one as I just cannot deal with feeling sick each day and experiencing all other side effects that I am doing at present.
